To all those parents or parents-to-be out there, there’s one thing that I would have loved (dreamed?) of being called when I had my first baby boy Ethan, and that was a ‘baby whisperer’.
Can you imagine the looks in the park…at the local café…? Hushed voices of mums saying ‘go and speak to her, she’s a baby whisperer, she’ll know what to do’… ALAS this was NOT the case. Like all mums, I learnt on the job and learnt many lessons the hard way (NB: never, ever forget the baby wipes). The only whispering coming from me was when Ethan was asleep and I was trying to have a 5 minute conversation with my husband and not wake him.
Yet after my second beautiful baby girl Lily was born things became easier (and I’m not lying here, more difficult in many ways juggling two small ones!) but knowing what she wanted as a baby became second nature.
My babies (yes they always will be) are now 6 and 3 and have grown up so fast. The sleep deprived early days of midnight feeds and constant nappy changes seem but a distant memory, & I often reminisce, through much loved photos that I took at the time, of how tiny and perfect they were.
In my job as a family & newborn photographer I find it a huge privilege to capture family’s special moments with their newborn babies. I know how precious these times are and indeed how quickly they pass and to get to be a part of creating a unique collection of photos that will last forever makes my job satisfaction tenfold.
It was therefore a huge honour and the reason why this feedback from a newborn family photo session is my February ‘Testimonial of the Month’:
“Reka is like the baby whisperer of photographers. She was so patient and very caring with my newborn twins and took some really beautiful pictures.” Anita
Not only was photographing these beautiful babies an absolute delight (just look at them!) but to be given the title of ‘baby whisperer’ makes me want to hang out in parks and cafés again holding up this sign….with the small print saying ‘it does get easier and I understand.’
Words I think all new mums need to hear.
